Cheap Seats Daily: What Sort of Clown Would Write an ‘Open Letter’ to Tiger Woods?

Today's Tiger Woods bits:
Michael Wilbon says Tiger's a better sportsman for getting caught with his pants down.
But that ain't the brainlessest thing written about Tiger lately. No, Wilbon's thesis reads like Malcolm Gladwell next to the efforts of CNBC's Larry Kudlow and FoxSports' Robert Lusetich. And the Denver Examiner's Rose Conley. And Rev. Ziegler over [...]

Cheap Seats Daily: Should Mike Nolan Send a Tub of Rocky Road Ice Cream to Dan Snyder’s Box on Sunday?
